H1Z1 looks like a zombie winter wonderland in these new weather screens

H1Z1 developer Sony Online Entertainment announced that both the zombie survival sandbox and shooter PlanetSide 2 will receive snow and weather effects. Company president John Smedley has now posted some frosty new shots of the zombie game dusted with lashings of lovely snow.

Did you miss this H1Z1 ‘Evil Ways’ trailer? Hit it up for a glimpse of the zombie sandbox in action.

Here are the snow shots, as posted by Smedley:


We’re guessing because this is a survival game, the snow can make you get sick or something. Sadistic buggers.


Really hope that shack has some form of central heating, or at least a hot water bottle.


“Anyone fancy a midnight stroll in total darkness? No? Don’t blame you.”


There’s a zombie in this picture. Can you spot it?

    Now this is interesting news. I don’t think I’ve seen snow done this well, before, and H1Z1 was the last place I expected to see this kind of development.

    We’ve had snow before in games, obviously, but it’s never, ever done well. It’s always this pre-placed stuff that just sits there and behaves like snow in no way whatsover, even is some of the more realistic skiing simulators, let alone games that aren’t focused directly on it as an environmental element.

    But if what we’re seeing here is snow that actually lays on the environment properly… that’s pretty much revolutionary.
